Kevin McCullough: A Story From Working With Christian Solidarity Int'l

"An amazing opportunity. And Kevin, because we've just begun this month, I thought it would be good to get you to talk about it because you're familiar with CSI and with how they do what they do. Yeah, well, I've had the great humbling honor to be a spokesperson for them for the last ten years or so. And one of the things that I can not get away from. And for the people that are watching your show on rumble or wherever you post it, I want you to see that the picture of this lady's face that I'm holding up to the camera right there. You can't see it very much, but I think you can at least get a glimpse of the smile. This is a woman by the name of a choke. And her story is very similar to many of the stories that you will hear about and you will read about in the work of CSI. But when she was taken into slavery and a lot of this happened during the Sudan Civil War, which was, I think, 1995, and when the Arabs from the northern section of what was then the united Sudan would travel down into the southern regions where the Christians were ransacked villages, they would rampage through towns. They would kill lots of the men and boys. They would grab and take captive the women and children and begin marching them towards the north. These were the spoils of war. This is what's happened since the beginning of time. But when they were put into slavery, they were treated completely inhumane. And I could detail some of what they've gone through a choke. The ladies whose picture I just showed you, she was systematically abused moment she was taken into captivity as a 9 year old girl.

Carl Jackson: If We Want to Save America, We Have to Stay and Fight

"Instead of encouraging people to get married and to have babies and instead of encouraging women not to kill their unborn babies, the answer to America's population problem is more illegal immigration. Well, what about the population problem that will occur in the countries that they left? Fascinating what the left does. And guys, listen, call your congressman call your senators. I know that we were all hoping to get a break. But if we're going to save America, we've got to stay in this fight. Listen, our soldiers and World War I World War II Vietnam, the Korean War, the Iraq War, Afghanistan, war. They didn't get to rest. The Civil War, the Revolutionary War, they didn't get to rest. Neither do we, and we don't have to take up arms. Thank God to do it. So we have to stay in this fight and right now. God, I wish the Republicans would do something eventually. I've praying to God we get a simple supermajority one day and we will do something about this lame duck session because the left is gonna do all that they can to cram legislation down our throats while they can. These people don't play by the rules. Republicans want to play nice. It isn't gonna work.

"civil war" Discussed on Key Battles of American History

"Has played a key role in the history of the United States, from the nation's founding, right down to the present. War made the U.S. independent, kept it together, increased its size and established it as a global superpower. Understanding America's wars is essential for understanding American history. Welcome to key battles of American history, a podcast in which we discuss American history through the lens of the most important battles of America's wars. Here is your host, James early. Hello everyone, and welcome to another special bonus episode of key battles of American history. This is your host James early as always. And as promised, this is the second of three mini episodes that deal with Texas during the Civil War, at least to some degree. This episode is actually on about a battle a couple of battles actually that were fought in the New Mexico territory, which is today part of it is the state of New Mexico and part of it is Arizona. But there were a lot of Texans involved in it. So it kind of checks the Texas box, if you will. This is another episode I wrote several years ago for the come and take it podcast. And so I hope you enjoy it. And I'd love to hear your thoughts on it. Do you want to hear more of this kind of thing? Just mini series that are not with the topic that we're covering at the time or do you not want to hear this or is there something else you'd like to hear? So let me know, I'd love to hear your feedback. All right, so without any further ado, let's go into this. It's called the New Mexico campaign. For decades prior to the Civil War, southern leaders had greedily eyed the lands west of the Louisiana Purchase. Most southerners understood that in order for the southern way of life to endure, slavery based agriculture would need to expand and the further the better. The annexation of Texas greatly augmented the southern cotton belt, but the status of the territories beyond Texas was left unsettled by the compromise of 1850. To the dismay of radical southerners, the compromise allowed the settlers of the New Mexico and Utah territories to choose whether the territories would enter the union as free or slave states. Even worse, the compromise allowed California to join the union as a free state.

John Zmirak and Eric Discuss Samuel Alito's Dismantling of Roe V Wade

"Samuel Alito, in his decision overturning roe V wade and Planned Parenthood V Casey, he doesn't talk about the morality of abortion. He doesn't talk about the unborn baby being human. He doesn't talk about Christianity. What he does is exactly what the lawyers did in the movie denial. Systematically dismantles the false intentionally deceptive, shallow, dishonest arguments offered in roe V wade and Planned Parenthood V Casey to pretend that the U.S. Constitution as adopted in 1787 and amended after the Civil War to pretend that the constitution secretly entailed the right to abortion. And he systematically obliterates all the arguments offered by the left in favor of abortion being protected by the U.S. Constitution. He doesn't show that they're false. He shows that they're garbage. They're garbage. They're worse actually than David Irving's falsification. But just to be clear, so the parallels clear to those listening in case people are missing it. In other words, rather than play to the crowd, knowing that abortion is a monstrous evil, just like we know what happened in the Holocaust is a monster evil. Rather than doing that, what Alito does just as Deborah lipstadt's lawyers do. They effectively say, no, we're going to pitch our argument at the legal experts. Right. We're going to show legally bloodlessly how this fails completely on a legal basis on a basis of fact, we're going to take a motion out of it, not that emotions ought to be taken out of it. But these are the tax taken by the lawyers in that case. And then by Sam Alito, so that's a brilliant parallel. That's

What Should Be the Right's Top Issue? Larry Elder Weighs In

"No matter whether it's Trump, or it's elder, or it's desantis, or what do you think needs to be that top issue that Republicans are moving forward with? Because there's been a lot of controversy about whether or not we got the messaging rate, I feel like we did. I don't know how you can say that talking about people's pocketbooks and their safety is wrong. But what should it be? Well, it's pocketbook issues, but I do think we underestimated the power of a couple of issues. One abortion. The other one is this phone issue of so called election denied. When roe V wade got overturned, I wasn't terribly concerned about it, although there was a flurry for a while, threat on the part of conservatives, it's going to energize the Democrats. But I thought it was going to go away. I thought it had gone away. The polling suggested that it had, but the exit polling suggested that the polling was wrong. It was the number two issue after the economy and well ahead of crime. And so we got that wrong. And I think a lot of Republicans failed to convince people that the reality is all the reversal of growth did is put this issue back to the states where it was for the first nearly 200 years of our republic. What's wrong with that? And I think a lot of Democrats believe that rogue reversal romantic abortion was going to be illegal. And I think it was a bad move on the part of Lindsey Graham to suggest that there's going to be some sort of national legislation to codify restrictions on abortion. It should not be a federal issue either pro choice or pro life. It should be a statewide issue. And I think that scared a lot of people. Regarding the election denying nonsense, you know, Carrie Lake, I thought Hanley pretty well when she informed her voters that Hillary has been denying elections for 5 years and Stacey Abrams denying elections for two years and Al Gore to this day believes that the Supreme Court put George W. Bush in office Vinny Thompson the chair of the January 6th committee tried to overturn the election first week of January 2005 by claiming that the Ohio debo voting machines have been tampered with, there's no evidence that that my point is for 22 years Democrats have been denying elections. I think a lot of Democrats are unaware of that. The reason I know that is I was in Dallas at an airport just a couple of days ago, Jen, and I'm talking to this moderate self described moderate, professor, and he was talking about how he felt that election denying earth the Republicans on Tuesday. And I told him what I told you about Hillary denying election for 5 years. He said, and I quote, I never heard her do that. I said, professor with all due respect, you are part of the problem that

"Is here. Hi, Larry. How are you? Thank you so much for having me. I appreciate it. You are traveling all over, I know. And before we chat about that, let's talk about a couple of things first. We have on tap the big announcement scheduled for Donald Trump tomorrow. He's jumping into the race for the presidency in 2024. A lot of media establishment types are trying to turn this into a Civil War, I believe, between Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump. We're on desantis hasn't said he's running yet, but certainly there is stuff happening behind the scenes. And what do you make of that? Do you think there's room for both of them or do you feel like I do where it should be maybe Trump then desantis not Trump versus desantis? Well, the media doesn't need to make it into a Civil War. Donald Trump has already fired the first shot by calling him Ron sanctimonious and saying that but for Donald Trump, he would not have become governor and that he had some dirt on Ron that he may put out in the event that Ron decides to run. So I think the first volley has already been fired by mister Trump.

Jennifer Horn: 'Mitch McConnell Gamed All of Us'

"So many problems right now with our party and so much of it comes from leadership. Today, I've been saying that Mitch McConnell game to all of us. I don't think he really cared about winning the majority in the Senate. He let Blake masters hang. He let Adam laxalt hang. He had no intention of helping Herschel Walker. He is not doing that. He allowed them to be outspent, Democrats at fought. Yes, they had to spend a lot of money, but they maintained those seats because Mitch McConnell failed, not because Donald Trump failed. What I don't and I also think we need a new leader of the R and C, I'd love to see. Someone like a Lee's Eldon come in, who knows how to identify issues who knows how to talk to people and who knows how to fight. Those would be great changes to the Republican Party. I am disappointed and I do hear what you're saying and I don't necessarily disagree because gosh, the future we have no guarantees. So if you tell Ron DeSantis, hey, you can run in four years. You can run again in 2028. These are things that we can't guarantee someone, but I do think if they broke her to deal and Trump gets in and in four years or after Ron DeSantis is done as governor of Florida, he gets appointed as Secretary of State or some high level position within the Trump administration, he's beautifully appointed to run his own very successful race right now. Trump knows where all the bodies are buried and he's already started the work. It's up to America to let him finish that.

Thank you, Dan. I appreciate you having me on. And now this is going to be an interesting one because we know Donald Trump is jumping in and we hear. Chris Christie talking about the independence that he's going to turn off and that perhaps maybe someone like Iran desantis is better suited. I would contend Carl that there aren't a lot of moderates independent. I almost feel like they're kind of like the unicorn. Everybody is so divided. Everybody has such strong opinions right now. And I believe what happened to our friendly older, it doesn't matter who you are. If you have a Republican buy your name, they're going to come after you. I don't know if you're Trump or just say it to whoever you are. They're coming for you. Yeah, honestly, this is why Jen, when we get in power, the Republican Party, we need to willpower. I mean, it's just simple as that, listen, I don't think that Trump is a liability to the GOP, that's a bunch of nonsense. I defer a little bit in where I don't, I didn't like the tag to desantis. I think this is the time to be united and not divided unless they do get into a primary. But I'll say this. I want Trump to be the next president. And I'll tell you, I'll tell you why. Foreign policy is that no one's talking about that. But for God's sakes, we're damn near and World War three, Trump was able to curtail Xi Jinping, the guy in North Korea, I don't know why his name escapes me right now. Kim Jong-un. Thank you.

‘Lion King’ Sign-Language Interpreter Says He Was Fired Over Race

"There is a Supreme Court ruling back in 1976 that white people could sue under a statute that was that was passed in a law back during the reconstruction era post Civil War. Now that law was intended to protect former slaves, but they believe that this law could also benefit white people who are now being fired for the color of their skin. Mister WAN told the New York Post, hey, this is wrong. This is discrimination. He said, if you insert a different color, if you insert a different race it is wrong, you are not allowed to fire somebody because of that reason. So according to the emails, and by the way, Disney is not commenting on any of this, but according to the email, they said only black sign language interpreters were going to be allowed. That's it. I mean, look, if that's the new rule, on Broadway, that you can only that an actor can an actor has to be the skin color of the character he is portraying, then all I can say is the folks at Hamilton have a great big problem on their hands. I mean, the whole shtick of Hamilton is, you got a bunch of people of color playing our founding fathers, and I hate to break it to you, ladies and gentlemen. But the founding fathers were a bunch of lily white honkies. I'm just saying. Well, there you go. Good luck to you, mister Wayne, and I hope you sue the living daylights out of them. All right,

WaPo: Rep. Kevin McCarthy Sabotaged Other Republican Campaigns

"Washington Post yesterday published a shocking story about how Kevin McCarthy has been working behind the scenes for several years now to sabotage the campaigns of conservative candidates. And by conservative candidates, I mean members of the House freedom caucus. We're going to be speaking to one of those members a little bit later on Ralph Norman from South Carolina. The story goes into great detail about how even this election cycle, Kevin McCarthy was funneling money to outside groups and the whole point of this was to sabotage the campaigns of conservatives. It's unbelievable. Folks, we've been telling you for a long time now that there is a Civil War underway in the Republican Party. It's been happening in the shadows. It's been happening behind the scenes, but it's been going on and it's been very effective. Not only had these conservatives been fighting the Democrats in many cases, these candidates have also been fighting their own party and they've had no idea. It is a covert operation. Now, McCarthy is not commenting on any of this, but apparently the RNC is involved in some capacity as well. It's a pretty ugly stuff. And now you're going to see Republicans rising up and calling out Donald Trump and I want you to understand something. When you look at these so called conservatives that are coming out and attacking Donald Trump. You need to go back and see if they were if they were on the Trump train to begin with, or if they have just been a silent or quiet never trumper. Because every single one of the ones I've looked at have been never trumpers. So not much has really changed here. That's what I'm getting at.

Dinesh and Debbie Discuss Michigan's Prop 3

"The results of the midterm election were, I would say only a disaster in the sense that we should have done so much better. Biden's policies have horrific effects. People a directly experienced those effects, so it should have been a complete wipeout. It's almost like one of those early battles of the Civil War where Lincoln would say in a sense, you know, why do we finish off the confederacy? Well, yeah, we were able to hold our own yahweh were able to advance a few yards or even a few miles, but we're not even close to taking Atlanta. Why is that? We have a much bigger army. We have much greater resources. And so we need to ask some tough questions of our own side as we think about what happened this week. Debbie joins me and Debbie has some interesting thoughts about two issues that have that we haven't paid a lot of attention to in part because we have strong convictions about them were kind of dug in on them, but they can be they can pose certain election problems for us. Honey, start by telling people about we were in Michigan for an event I did with Grand Rapids right to life was a tremendous great event 1300 people, but we learned a lot about this proposal three, which was coming up on the ballot, and in fact has now been voted upon, talk a little bit about proposal three, what it does, but also kind of the deceptive way that it's framed so that people are, they don't really know what it does. Right, so prop three basically gives Michigan Michigan women. The right to have an abortion at any time in their pregnancy, including 9 months. They also have, if it's a teen pregnancy, they do not need parental consent to have the abortion. So this is, you know, this is horrible. This is something that is a strike against the right to life. But they framed it very, they were very sneaky in the way that they used the language and the proposal. For example, they said that this proposal proposal three was the constitutional right to reproductive freedom. So when you say that, you are in essence saying, listen, the right to your reproductive freedom only belongs to you and your doctor, but it's between you and your doctor. The government has no right to tell you what when you can have an abortion when you can get contraception, et cetera, et cetera.

Conservatives Accuse DeSantis of Being an Establishment Republican

"Until yesterday when Trump labeled him Ron de saint ammonias. The America first, the America first crowd, was singing Ron DeSantis's praises. They were saying, oh, this is a great man. He stood up to Doctor Fauci. He reopened our businesses. He declared war on these radical school boards. He stood up for moms and dads. He stood up against the woke businesses like Disney World. He even went so far as to declare war on the gender mutilation surgeries for juveniles. Ron DeSantis is a younger version of Donald Trump. That's what they were saying, but now, and it's just amazing to see how all of this how all of this changes so quickly. On a dime, now those very same people are saying that Ron DeSantis is really a closet establishment Republican because he's got the support of the backing of people like the Jeb Bush. Now, folks, you can't have it both ways here. Here's my take on it. I think Trump made a mistake. And Trump, yes, president Trump can make a mistake. And I think that at this moment, here's what needs to happen. I get it. They may hate each other. I don't know. Trump says they're good friends. I don't know. I do not know, but one thing is clear. We got to knock off the nonsense. This is dividing the party and we can not have the party divided. Now I will say this. There is a Republican Civil War coming. And it will be ugly and we're going to get into all of that probably starting later this week, but right now, right now folks, we got to focus.

"Mean, if you heard the show yesterday, we violated the bob sesso, don't get happy. We got happy. I mean, we did, but you know what? You also remind us on Twitter. You said I love how they're measuring the drapes, depressing their own turnout, Democrats aren't making the same mistake this year. So yes, whatever drives turn out is what I'm for because you're right. They're like way overconfident. Yeah, and that's why I felt okay with being optimistic about the midterms because I feel as though forgive the movie reference on this, but I feel as though the Democrats have the eye of the Tiger that were the scrappy underdogs in this. Weirdly, I mean, we control House of Representatives in The White House and, you know, half of the Senate, but at the same time, we understand the stakes of this. Meanwhile, Ted Cruz and the Republicans are going around acting as though they've already won, which is one stupid and will depress their own turnout. But two is actually setting them up for something more nefarious, which is what they will inevitably do. If the Democrats over perform as they appear to be doing so far in the early votes and that ends up being the ultimate result and the Democrats keep Congress, then the Republicans are going to say, oh, but the polls before said something different and now they want so all the election is rigged so now we're going to have a Civil War. That's why they're commissioning so many polls as we talked about yesterday that are skewing the average. So right, they can go rigged fake news, et cetera.

Anthony Fauci Was Never Elected...

"Fauci was never elected, okay? So no one ever went to a ballot box. And so you know I want to give him a bunch of power. He was largely unknown up until the virus, and he had unlimited amounts of power. I make the argument that Anthony Fauci and it's a great learning lesson. Has anyone ever had as much power as Anthony Fauci had for 18 months in American history? And okay, well then you could ask me who maybe not, that's fine. Maybe you're agreeing with me or not. I don't know. But the power to lock down your kids from going to school, the power to literally control the breathing of an entire generation. The power to kick people out of a military for not that of the military for not taking mRNA, gene altering technology. That's an incredible amount of power. And even if a president has had that kind of power, let's say Abraham Lincoln had that power. At least he was voted to office, at least someone said I want you to be in a position of authority and in some ways Anthony Fauci became the sovereign and Anthony Fauci became a lot more powerful and important than the American people. So then you say, how on earth do we restrain that? Well, this is why we need a complete and total constitutional reset in our country right now. Whereas that whatever the new Congress is, whoever takes power, there needs to be a mass check and balance campaign. And I think a purge of this administrative state in the fourth branch of government. And this is something I really want to kind of, whether you live in Missouri or Kansas, both Missouri and Kansas, I think, have been abused by the federal government for far too long.

Abraham Lincoln Was Very Torn by the Carnage of the Civil War

"Was very torn by the carnage that was going on in the United States during this time. It racked him, constantly, is the death that was going on and frankly, he felt for the war itself on both sides that was very felt personal. But he was very committed to making sure that the union would prevail. That the United States would again be the United States. And he may really something that was really a concept that came out of this is that America in America was both a place and a concept and I've heard this express it was a physical location and an idea. When you think of America, it is, it is not just the location that we're in, but it is a concept of freedom and the individuals. And we the people and there's so much that goes into that that can't be related to a single place, a single time. And Lincoln was one who believed that you saw it in this speech. And let's break that down because I think it's so important today. When I see the political infighting, when I say both Republicans and Democrats, going at it, and what is sometimes outside the branding of civil discourse outside the branding of normal debate. We've got to get back into the idea that we can debate issues debate ideas. And at the end of the day, disagree with each other, we might not want to go have dinner with each other, but at the end of the day, you know, realizing that except in the most, this is not an issue of evil and people being inherently evil because they hold these that are different from mine. Now there are certain ideas that I frankly hope that, you know, especially when it comes to life and those kind of things that I do believe that are not proper, but at the same point in time in a course like we have in our United States, this is the kind of discourse that we have. We've got to convince each other of our right ideas. They may be things that we can't understand and they may be evil in our side, but at a certain point in time, we've also got to remember we're a society in which the idea and the concept, the idea of America is that we have these freedoms that come together and mesh into one.

Doug Reflects on the Gettysburg Address

"The Gettysburg address was in November 19th, 1863. If you study the Civil War, the battle of Gettysburg was really a turning point in the war. It was a very bloody battle, many lost, but it was the stretch or the furtherest stretch up of the confederate army into Pennsylvania. And really what hands on that battle was really how far up the southern army would go. Could the Union Army stop them at this point in time, there was, frankly, the southern army was making a lot of headway in through Virginia through the neighborhood to move on into Pennsylvania. We were seeing just the beginnings of the battles on the west. This would be for grant came out of later. But November 19th, 1863, it was a turning point in the war in the victory for the Union Army there was very important in what eventually became the defeat of the confederacy and the defeat of the confederate army. But it took a great deal. There's so much we could go into. I mean, I'm one who enjoys studying battles and history moments. I've also been asking times to do talk about doing a podcast events that changed history, you know, things like what had happened if the battle that pickets charge and all these went differently. It Gettysburg. What if the German Army had decided to not stop at the English Channel had went ahead and had a full blown invasion of England. There's so many historical thoughts. I mean, Japan and not stopping at Pearl Harbor, but continuing on in different ways along the West Coast of the United States. All of these things that didn't happen, but if had, what were they done to change the world? These are the kind of things that are fascinating to talk about to see what the could have been. The Gettysburg battle was one, though, that the way it came out did solidify what would be our union from here to come. So in looking at this speech, it's not a normal space. Number one. In the sense of, you know, today, you know, there's only 270 something words in this speech. You know, 72, 75, depending on which way you count the words. This will be more remarks in today's language. This would be, you know, the very simple remarks given and at an event that, you know, people wasn't expecting a whole lot.

The Enemy of Liberalism Is the Left

"So anyway, on the good news side. And I have reveled in positive feedback ideal with really horrible things every day. The attempt to destroy this country by the left is the greatest attempt to destroy this country since the Civil War. They loathe what we stand for in God we trust E pluribus Unum and liberty, the three values that are on every coin the left despises all of them. These are really lost bad souls, my friend. Liberals do not share the left values, but they vote for them. That is the tragedy of modern America that liberals enable the left. If that didn't happen, if liberals voted their values, there would be no Democrats in office. That's the way it works, whether it's here in Pennsylvania or anywhere else. Liberals have bought the lie that their enemy is the right. The enemy of liberalism is the left.

Is Democracy Now Fascism? Lord Conrad Black Weighs In

"On the right win in 2022 in November next month, to me, democracy looks like it's over in America, fascism is here to stay. And if they lose, we get maybe another insurrection, domestic terrorism, a Civil War God forbid. Maddie Hassan MSNBC with a strange definition of fascism if the Republicans win the election, then fascism has arrived. I guess the majority picking who should be in Congress is Marie Hussain's definition of fascism. I know somebody who will have a very different one. Presidential historian former media mogul, financier, judicial reform advocate, and just an all around good friend of the show, lord Conrad black, welcome back to America first. Thanks, Sebastian. I'm delighted to come back and listen to such rubbish. I mean, what that man said. I mean, this is the representative of one of the leading networks. Yes. Democracy is fascism. Now, in fact, fascism as those of you who are listening to are interested are aware was in fact a bunch of street bullies wearing black shirts bearing symbolically the faces as symbol of the authority of the Roman Republic, the Caesars and Julius Caesar anyway. And marching upon Rome and installing an authoritarian government, apart from that Mussolini, he was essentially just one of history's more spectacular scoundrels, though an able man in many ways. I made it up as he went along, but he fell under the spell of Hitler and ended up being shot by communists and hung upside down a gas station. That's fascism. With his girlfriend, hung upside down. And how you equate that to the Republicans winning an election, which happened when Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt and Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan, for example, were elected. How you equate that to the Republicans winning an election. I think that's something of psychiatrists and people who deal with severely deranged people would have to have to survey. But let's

"civil war" Discussed on The Argument

"Represents the ultimate threat. Yeah, I think that what you've seen now from desantis and from those who wish to be like him is this idea of like, well, the problem was that Trump didn't go far enough. They are justifying the wielding of the administrative state against their enemies, even if it won't hold up in a court. There are people who should know better who would think of themselves as being conservative, small state conservatives, who are applauding that use of force because the threat is too great, that we're in a war. There's a trans kid out there somewhere, thus I am justified to use the state against them and to threaten them with child protective services. But so much of this seems to be coming from people who are wielding Trump for either reasons of economics or reasons of just wanting to have power. The economics are on the side of extremism. But when we started talking about Civil War rhetoric, a way that I kind of get frustrated and admittedly Tim I was a little frustrated with your piece because it can feel like catering to the hostage taker. Like I read your argument in the Atlantic and I thought it was well raised, but part of my takeaway seemed to be that we shouldn't perhaps pursue justice or in just a baseline level if this person may have committed a crime and we shouldn't prosecute that crime because it could provoke the people who believe a conspiracy about our democracy. If Donald Trump did what the Department of Justice appears to as far as we know, think that he did, which seems to be the answer is yes. Yes, he did. And then he will continue to talk about it in interviews. What is the action that you want? The country, the government, the Department of Justice to take instead because using the rhetoric of a foreboding Civil War feels like it's asking me to cater to the hostage takers who want to foment us Civil War because we're afraid of what they might do. That's completely fair. And I want to be clear and I try to be in the article, although based on some reader feedback and on your feedback right now, probably wasn't clear enough. I stayed in the piece that I believe Trump has committed crimes and should be prosecuted because no one is above the law. I think what I wanted to express in the piece is just a warning to what I perceive to be a rather complacent America that is somewhat blissfully detached from the reality of these threats. I think there's a real danger here and at the end of the day, I don't know that it's at all avoidable, and I certainly don't think it's avoidable by, as you say, Jane, sort of catering to the bad actors, the criminals. We have a system we have laws and they need to be enforced. But I think, you know, I've got a piece coming in the next issue of the Atlantic. Where I talk with an individual who's one of the longtime leading authorities on an election administration in the countries, a nonpartisan, somebody who for decades and decades has been held up as like the guy and he was brought out of retirement in 2020 to run the election day operations in the city of Detroit. And so he had a front row seat for what was perhaps the ugliest single most chaotic election day activity in the entire country back in 2020. And despite everything he saw, people signing affidavits claiming they saw things that they didn't see ugly, horrible, racist rhetoric. Despite seeing all of this and this sort of brazen attempt by Republican elected officials on the ground to try and overturn an election that was decided by a 154,000 votes, right? This might seem all of that. He tells me that, you know what, I think this is going to be all right. I really do. I think this is going to be fine and here's why. And I said to him at some point, I said, you're just like us. You're just like the rest of us who just, we all want to tell ourselves a story that we've been through tough times before and this is just another case where we're going to have to buckle up and we'll survive it because that's what we do. And whether or not that's true, it just feels disingenuous to pretend like there's not something unique about this threat. And at the risk of going along with my answer, I'll just add Jane that you mentioned gun shows earlier. For over a decade, I've gone to gun shows just as a matter of routine. And I will say even during the height of the Obama era hysteria, not just about the birtherism and all that stuff, but like he's going to come take our guns, right? Particularly after sandy hook and you seeing gun sales through the roof, the thing that I saw then was very narrow in terms of its purpose, the people who were coming, they're stocking up on guns and ammo because, well, the big bad government is going to put us on registries and ultimately they're going to come and try to confiscate our weapons. When I go to gun shows today, you talk to people there and the rhetoric and the purpose of them being there is completely different. It almost entirely and so many conversations revolves around these notions of an imminent mass conflict and that they need to be ready for it. And by the way, it's not just, you know, maga loving Trump supporters who are there, you know, loading up on AR-15s, I have been consistently stunned at the number of individuals who will very quietly sort of whisper to you that they are Democrats, and these are Asian Americans. These are black Americans. These are Hispanics. These are women, suburban moms, and they are buying guns because they believe that something is about to go down. And I just, I can't really quantify what a sea change that feels like at least to me. And so I guess when I write a piece like the one that you are registering some frustration with and I don't blame you for a minute for registering that frustration, I guess what I'm really trying to do is say, listen, yes, prosecute him, yes, treat him like anybody else. Yes, this is what we ought to do just before warned that this is all probably heading in a very dark and dangerous direction and we all should just be prepared for it. Jamel, if these issues are structural, which is something you've pointed out. But the threats are moving faster than the structures can change, or even that it seems like it'll take at this rate like 30 years for someone to admit that we have a problem. What do we do? Should there be more speeches, more people talking about it? To me, that just seems almost useless when you have the any effort to call attention to this becomes spin that says that you're trying to make it happen. So I know that you are not actually in charge of everything. But jamel, what do we do? Great question. I have no idea. The only actors on this stage who have the agency to do something are Republican politicians at this point. They are the ones who have the ability to keep these things from spiraling out of control. The problem is that doing so would probably doom them in the next election cycles, right? And on the one hand, you don't want to say, well, you know, obviously if they're not going to do that, well, they're making a choice not to do it. They're making a choice not to exercise their agency in this particular way. And that's important. I think that has moral weight. But thinking practically, like, yeah, of course, people who want to win office are not going to do things that would cause them to lose office. And so if you grant that, it's hard for me to think of what to do in the immediate term to marginalize this political movement to weaken it, Tim

"I'm Kevin roose. And I'm Casey Newton, weird technology reporters, and the hosts of hard fork. A new show from The New York Times. A hard fork is a programming term for when you're building something, but it gets really screwed up. So you take the entire thing, break it, and start over. And that's a little bit what it feels like right now in the tech industry. These companies that you and I have been writing about for the past decade. They're all kind of struggling to stay relevant. Yeah, I mean, a lot of the energy and money in Silicon Valley is shifting to totally new ideas. Crypto, the metaverse, AI. It feels like a real turning point. And all this is happening so fast, some of it's so strange. I just feel like I'm texting you constantly, like what is this story? Explain this to me. And so we're going to talk about these stories, we're going to bring in other journalists, newsmakers, whoever else is involved in building this future to explain to us what's changing and why it all matters. Hard fork from The New York Times. Listen, wherever you get your podcasts. So we were just talking about religion, and I'd argue it's not just the religiosity. It's the religiosity surrounding a specific person. Which I will never move on, I will never move on from the fact that this is all about Donald Trump. Like I said, it's all about the guy from home alone two. Because I don't think Trump really cares about our Civil War. I think he cares a lot about making money. And ideally not going to prison. And at a certain point, a Civil War or kind of increased conflict, it will require that type of violent religiosity, but it also will require that from a very large number of people across a very wide spectrum. And thinking about trying to put this in some context, where does Trump play into this? Because I think it doesn't seem like it could happen with somebody who wasn't him. Like there aren't people like, I will die for Ron DeSantis. Not yet. I mean, I think with Trump and his audience's crowd of supporters, I think what we're kind of witnessing is like a dialectical process, right? There are preexisting in the electorate, anxieties, fears, anger, resentment, rage, about changing cultural and demographic facts about the country. It's not just that the country is becoming less white. That's a part of it. But it's also that the country is becoming less kind of explicitly Christian, less explicitly deferential to Christian belief. It's becoming more open and tolerant of different sexualities, different gender identities, different religions, right? And so you have many negative feelings about that. And Trump, as a candidate, both appeals to that, but also reflects that stuff back on to the audience and allows the audience to kind of invest him with their hopes about beating this back and in this kind of crazy cult of personality around Trump. Or at least around what Trump appears to represent. I think that's sort of what's happening with Trump. I've been thinking through this conversation about this is ostensibly about sort of the prospect of Civil War or not even thinking about what trying to crystallize exactly my disagreement with the Civil War framing. What I think my exact disagreement is and this connects to Trump and connects to sort of his relationship to his supporters, is that I think that when we're envisioning what is the most catastrophic thing that can happen in the United States or in the end of American democracy through some sort of conflict, we're envisioning authoritarianism. We're bringing all these terrible things. And we assume, I think there's a common assumption that if it happens, it's going to be a thing that from outside the system imposing onto it or something that erupts from within the system that tears it apart and then creates this new status quo. And I think my view is that the system itself facilitates all this stuff, right? That it's not actually coming from outside the system, it's not a break from within the system. It actually represents aspects of the system asserting themselves in ways that they haven't before. The constitution creates a system of interlocking system of counter majoritarian institutions that are explicitly designed to tamp down on popular government. And so because that is so incongruous with our sense of what the American political system is. I think we imagine it receive it or feel it to be like an assault on the constitution and assault on the system. But I think it's probably better to understand it as sort of the to use the word dialectical again as the counter majoritarian part of the American political system coming into direct conflict with the democratic assumptions of the American people. And in the absence of any kind of countervailing force to change the system, what we get is something much less democratic than what we had before. Tim, what do you think? Well, there's a lot to the point that jamel is making, and I want to get specifically to what he said near the end there. But before I do, I want to tie it back to something that he said earlier about Trump. Part of the Trump phenomenon, at least through my eyes, has been and continues to be the degree to which your average on fire Trump supporter, somebody who really defends him, somebody who defends their vote for him. The degree to which those individuals perceive and attack on Trump as an attack on them, right? And attack on Trump's character is therefore an attack on their character because they voted for him in the first place. I think what that relationship between so many of these people and Trump has essentially distilled down into now is what continues to breathe life into Trump and part of what I do worry about in the wake of the August 8th Mar-a-Lago episode is this martyrdom complex that is so unique in the days after the 2020 election and leading up to January 6th, of course, you had the Arizona state Republican Party tweeting out endorsing martyrdom, like literal martyrdom. You had Eric metaxas a very prominent and very influential voice in the evangelical world talking to Trump on his radio show about the court challenges and saying, I'm willing to die in this fight. God is with us. God is on our side. It's so tempting, I think, to want to sweep these things to the fringe to the periphery of our politics and say, well, you know, sure, you're always going to have some nutcase muttering to himself here or there. But in fact, this martyrdom complex became in many ways central to the psychology of the Trump voter that he was being sort of righteously persecuted on their behalf. I think what's so interesting is that you joked Jane about nobody's willing to die for Ron DeSantis yet, right? But the meaningful difference to me between Trump and desantis is that desantis has already shown an ability to wield the administrative state against his enemies and this gets to Jamal's point about sort of the system itself. And to me, as unique as the threat has been and continues to be with Donald Trump in the picture, I'm not sure that another Republican could not at some point attempt to wield the administrative state and exploit some of the loopholes in our system in a way that could be contributing to a far greater threat of civil violence at a mass scale, whether we want to call it Civil War or not. So that's just the way I view Trump is like, yes, this has been a threat. Yes, he is the dominant figure in all of this. And yet, as we look forward, I'm not at all convinced that he

"So there was bad blood coming into the show. You guys set up drank twerk turned up all y'all did all y'all fever. You know what I'm saying? So when you come into this show, you guys get to sit back and watch all of these beefs rise and come to a head while you're like, okay, so what's gonna happen? Oh, you can be in chill. The first challenge I ever did was battle of the seasons two, which meant I came in with my real world, some of my real Brooklyn castmates. And let me just say, we did not get along. And we did not compete on real world, same thing. We're not making out with each other, ew. But we weren't as strong as we see the love island girls on this season of the challenge. We had some real and actually still to this day have some real issues. So yeah, plus you guys have to understand like we went into this with cash and Cinco, not even looking at each other. Right. We were all right. Right. No matter. So we were the weakest link in the compound apparently that everybody thought. We also were fighting against each other with relationship issues. So casual and Kira, like they didn't talk for a year. That was weird. And then cash and sinkholes, we already felt like although they did have their bad blood, we did too. I think that the girls just decided to stick together a little stronger so that we looked more loyal as a TV show. Compared to the other ones. So like, although, you know, I know there's bad blood and competitions, but if she hooked up with your man, then, you know, that brings me shit. So yeah, that's fair. It's not only playing a game. It's relationships and emotions that I or people. So, you know, either way you look at it, it was, it was all right. We ended up being okay. I'm so glad you brought that up about the exes, 'cause Kira had her ex there was casual. And then cash had Cinco. Would you have been able to play this game if they had brought in one of your exes? No. Yeah, actually, I could. And you wouldn't want to be pretty. I don't care who they're with. You know what I mean? You have to think about that. It's outside of the show shit, like cash and sink of dated outside of the show. So did cure cash? This is real world shit. This isn't competitions in games and TJ's finals and stuff like that. It's real world shit and it actually really hurts. So, you know, no, I don't think a lot of people could have done what they went through with their exes. I'm glad my ex was not in there.

"Yeah, so the question is, are we heading towards a Civil War? Dennis has been prolific on this and prophetic because he said it earlier out loud. We're already living through. And it's just a matter of time before I think we really kind of it catches up to the what is going to happen is going to catch up with our living through, which is when I go to San Francisco, I have nothing in common with the people there. And it's mutual, by the way. Sarah Silverman who calls herself the comedian came out and she said, why are we living in the country with these unvaccinated people? I don't want to live in a country. Why don't they have their own country, and we have our own country. And exactly, and what I just heard from so many people, people just said, yeah, let's do it. And right. And so I just want you to kind of just absorb what has happened in the room here. You have a bunch of people who love this flag. That flag's not going to be around if those of you that just clapped, get what you want. I'm being serious. You just clapped for secession. And so that's a serious thing. That this room's enthusiastic about separating. We're already there, folks. This idea of like, oh, we're divided like you got one side that's demanding the severance and the other side that can't wait for it. And so and you're already seeing it through kind of the slow motion secession that's happening on Southwest Airlines or American Airlines of people that move to other states because they feel they don't represent them. And so who knows how this is going to end up? It could end up in physical confrontation. I think the regime is trying to provoke physical confrontation. I think they want us to get physical, which is why at every event on that and anyone asks me would literally someone ask me rather bluntly and suspiciously bluntly, when do we get the guns? I denounced him, and I said, that's exactly what the power grabbers want you to do. That will give them the Patriot Act two to be able to really seize control over you right now. It's that what they don't want you to do is keep on showing up to school board meetings and be patient and have self control and take back power through peaceful means. That's what they're really

"Wants to peddle the idea of getting involved again by you know getting involved in another war by a showing this like sad story of a small ethnic group being bullied by two countries on both sides of it is that may be it like. They're trying to yeah. They're trying to get people to like stomach. The idea of. Us intervention by playing up in the tigray inside here. Here's the thing. here's the thing though. I the american public would not buy into this war like it is just so like i was saying earlier. I think americans probably kind of a associate every single african conflict into one new into one conflict. They can that they remember. They probably think of like this as an extension of the rwandan genocides. Just going to say that. Yeah we the that. Probably oh that kind of like their wand in genocide honestly if i was talking to any of my friends this and i was like hey man like going on european. Oh is it like who not like. They would think that that They can totally conflate this with something with something else so. I don't think that selling americans that you need to Intervene on in this conflict. I think would Would not go well. And i don't think joe biden has any interest in getting involved in this late. Joe biden has basically said some stuff like this needs to stop. And i think he's meeting with with with kenya for enough for some peace conference. I'm not sure what day it is. I think it's coming up this week. Actually this episode quote from this episode is gonna come on sunday and we're recording this on wednesday the thirteenth right. Yeah so this is going to be like five days. He's gonna come out like five days after record this who knows what can change however it is. I don't i don't think biden really cares like we just pulled out of out of gaffe ghanistan. There's definitely a wing of the state department that is fatigued by this. And there's like wool deal. It looks like might be just trying to pull the you know the sanctions card here. Because he said yeah he's just like what can i do. Say the thing that i care about this but not really doing anything right okay. Fine sanctions ray. So he actually That the the humanitarian crisis in the human rights crisis in ethiopia is an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the united states which is interesting language in general. You know So he's he's noting that it is a threat to national security intimate. Maybe he's just placating the the war hawks back at home but the the things that they're doing about it is putting in place mechanisms to impose sanctions on individuals and entities. Engaged in the war and abuses. Which is so broad right. So there's that.

"The us government has with the tigray leadership because We worked with them extensively during the war and terror and we had a relationship. Then i mean susan. Rice apparently had a really really close relationship. A relationship with with the nawab. So it's it's There's interesting dynamics. It might just be because the people in the state department just are kind of friendly with the people from From tigray and that could be it. I mean so. I if i can offer my take. I think it's kind of easy to to. It's an easy story to sell to the american public. That oh look at this. Well no no one's from america's listening known cares well. Well that's why i was so surprised. Maybe we can you know. Get back to how we started the show in the first place because they're starting to introduce this to the people right this. Cnn segment was the first major. Like inroad there And actually before. I forget my take on it and talk about some of this stuff. Let's let's let's go a little deeper into that. That story so going back to the beginning apparently how ethiopia Their government used their their countries. Flagship commercial airline and that's Ethiopian airlines to shuttle weapons to and from you know a eritrea during that that crisis last year and this happened Apparently across multiple ethiopian airlines planes and flights in november Twenty twenty during the first couple of weeks of the conflict and and honestly. I wish we could have gotten that scoop when we were covering last year. Because it's is a really fascinating story I just wanna start by saying that smuggling weapons on civilian aircraft is a violation of international aviation law. And there is a million reasons. Why it's a violation of bird'll it's a bird law you know you don't wanna fuck with birds no aviation law international aviation. There's a million reasons. Why but i think the biggest reason why you. You don't want why the international community doesn't want states to be transporting weaponry with civilian aircraft is because you don't want to state thinking that any civilian aircraft is fair game because weapons may be on board. It would be total disaster. So they think about like a sinking of the lusitania even though we definitely had weapons on there. But you know what. I'm saying right so the reason why it's it's against the rules is because we don't want any stating civilians at risk. Sorry as putting civilians at risk exactly right and and even even if it puts them at risk regardless if there's weapons on board or not so that's why these roseanne place and for the most part people follow him and what was interesting about. This is that you know. It's a fair role. I would say their arms right like don't do that. Don't don't smuggle arms with commercial. Airlines is a not a is a. It's a regulation that i don't find unreasonable..

"That But the dplf in in the epl f. They were brothers in arms against the communist dirge. they were also both leftist groups too. So they're all marxist-leninist groups so it shows that you can really different brand yourself along anything But i believe the the epl fda eventually turned into maoism so they leave the marxist leninist philosophy and they revert to maoism. But i guess that's a whole different can of worms So the epl f the irretrievable nationalist. They ended up working with the t. p. l. f. in they originally are the ones who are arming. In their training. The tigray nationalist in ethiopia. So they trained. Dplf now the ethiopian civil war that breaks out in the nineteen eighties. It was incredibly brutal. I think westerners look at african conflicts as guys running around with machetes chopping people's hands off. This wasn't the case at all. These were two highly trained armies With russian migs had armored divisions it was a brutal world war. Two tight modern conflict and You know almost two million people were killed. If you include the famine that started due to the war but to oversimplify this the t p l f. so the the armed resistance movement of tigray became the successors of the state of ethiopia after the war was won in nineteen ninety one. So they're the government comes into place after the communist dirge 'cause they want and they took over yes meanwhile the p. l. f. they succeed from ethiopia and they create their own state by nineteen ninety-three. So that makes a follow me right now. Yeah totally so The Era trans and the tigrayans fight a war against the Communist dirge of of most of ethiopia. And they win the grand. They're both they're both leftist groups to write episodes and the are both marxist type like leftist groups right so just to make it more just different brands. Right the different brands. And so they fight this war and they win So but the tigrayans takeover ethiopia and the eritreans bounce. They're like we're going to do our own thing. We're gonna make our own country Exactly cool so caught up all right. So the union between the t. l. f. and the other political coalitions of ethiopia because there's other coalitions in ethiopia. There's only six percent of the population right so that union is called the ethiopian people's revolutionary democratic front. All right say that three times really fast in the ep. Deem or d. f. the epa the eprdf the eprdf. So would they do. They set up a federal government. Or excuse me. A federal republic and the constitution of this new government established an ethnic federal system that gave ethnic groups autonomy from the centralized state. So this was called ethnic federalism.

She was us ambassador botswana where she served concurrently as the us representative to the southern african development community before that michelle was a special assistant to president barack obama in the senior director for africa on the staff of the national security council michelle. Thanks you being here. Thanks so much for having michelle. Afghanistan is dominated news. As we're speaking so i think a lot of people haven't heard or followed what's been happening in ethiopia. Maybe we could just start by laying out for us. How things currently stand in ethiopia. Sure well unfortunately the situation ethiopia has really gone from bad to worse so fighting that began last november between the two gray enforces in the state of tigray in ethiopia and federal government forces very quickly brought in additional armed groups that would be military of country of eritrea. But also some emperor militia what we have now are even more actors even more armed groups involved in the fighting and we have a geographics sort of expansion of the conflict beyond the borders of tigray itself into a far and amhara states that border on tigray so essentially you have more armed elements in the mix fighting over a larger swath of territory the humanitarian crisis. Which is captured so much of the world's attention persists and in some ways has gotten worse as the sort of chokepoints for bringing food and other types of assistance to people in need have essentially narrowed down to one. There is one way that we're getting humanitarian assistance to tigray and it's not getting in fast enough with talk about how we got to the stage later. We can talk about where we're likely to go. Potential for diplomatic mediation the rest. But i'm trying to understand why the fighting broke out in the first place. Now ethiopia's the country of roughly one hundred ten million people. I have seen estimates that ethiopia has as many as ninety different ethnic groups tigray estate in northern part of ethiopia tigrayans constitute about five percent of the ethiopian population. How is we ended up in a situation which such a small group of people is in a battle with the central government. Well you have to step back in ethiopian history. A bit history is going to be love history on the presence. Inbox great stuff..

"I think one is that yes needed. Turner raise more money than sean brown but there was a lot of outside money in this race and nina. Turner mentioned it. The democratic majority for israel super pac spent close to a million dollars. Tv ads against nina turner szanto brown's fundraising did pick towards the end in nina. Turner spent a lot of money on tv very early in the race. She went up in late april for in august. Third primary. I think you could make the argument. She was trying to lock her lead. But by the end she was being out pointed out spent on the air By sean. Tell brennan sean. Toll brown ally. So i think this idea that like even you know as a financial resource can't sell these ideas is is a little unfair. I think when you look at the ads that sean brown ran and that these outside groups ran against nina turner. They weren't saying nina. Turner supports medicare for all in the green new deal. Here's why these ideas will hurt your life or hurt the way you live for why they're not good for you. They said nina. Turner is not a good soldier for the democratic party. Nina turner has said mean things about joe biden. Nina turner is not going to you. Know get things done and so like being anti joe biden is not popular but i don't know that this race proved that progressive ideas are popular at the base. Because it's really not what. They attacked her own. Yeah yeah and so. I'm hesitant to draw too big of a takeaway on the policy proposals. Yeah it seems it seems like there's not that wide gap anymore at least in washington with what biden is driving policy-wise between the sanders wing and the biden wing. Right sanders is the guy writing biden. The biden budget in the senate and the white house seems pretty happy with it. And i think progressives are trying to figure out how do we fit into this democratic washington like sean mcelwee st- the liberal pulling data for progress Told me last night. Democratic voters like the democratic party progressives to show that we support the democratic party living up to its true values not trying to tear it down. I think there's a wing of the progressive party that envisions working with the establishment. Working inside at like you mentioned and not blowing it out from the outside which is what. A lot of nina's past rhetoric hinted at alley on the republican side. We had another nice press friendly civil war narrative going on we had a much bigger fielded candidates but one of them was endorsed by donald trump. And he's a wonderful man. I've known her for a long time. Mike.

"In president binds caton so she can't endorse in the race. Calm and i can so that the underlying thread between the battle and why the cbc decided to endorses that the cdc has been has seen more progressive primary challengers in recent years especially since eighteen and in twenty twenty corey. Bush actually said lacy clay from his saint. Louis district black majority district lacy claes the son of a founder of the cbc and joyce beatty the current chairwoman had a progressive challenger. That clark has had a challenge a really intense fear in the cbc of being ousted by progressive challenges in. It's not just because they like being in congress and they want to stay in congress even as some of these kind of younger black progressive candidates win open seats enjoying the cbc changed. The dynamic cbc is a historic group that prides itself on unity on its ability to act as a block. And now that there's more difference than ideology because some of the the younger members are more progressive but also style They're more critical of leadership. They don't necessarily defer to seniority. And so there's kind of competing view of what the cbc should be and nina turner really embodied for them. You know someone that was going to come in and hurt their unity and break their ability to speak with one voice and jim clyburn got so heavily involved in the race because nina turner and killer mike and a conversation that they had during a campaign of an june had suggested that no. He wasn't doing enough to trade on his endorsement of biden. He wasn't doing enough to extract more gains from bite. It and that really angered jim clyburn. And that was part of why he couldn't add for chantal brown and why he came into the district and y you know they got involved in the way that they did so. There's a bigger kind of question about the cbc in their involvement. That is really interesting. I feel like killer. Mike in clyburn have a little bit history as 'cause killer. Mike has been a longtime bernie supporter and campaigned heavily in south carolina. I think the clever presidential candidates have always defeated killer. Mike candidates in those presidential primaries in south carolina. So clever and this is like three for three with with him against a killer. Mike candidates and this was. I mean he really came in and endorsed someone tell she was behind and help took it over the finish line. So he definitely earned the king-making power here while sue one interesting dynamic that was playing out in washington on the same day as this primary. Is that corey bush Known as a member of the squad Very prominent a black woman progressive in the house. I'm elated and i'm overwhelmed. You know because just the thought that so many people right now. Millions of people you know will not be fourth out on the street. She was essentially leading activists to push the biden administration on this issue of the evictions. Moratorium got a ton of attention by staying overnight on the capitol steps. She couldn't literally sleep on the capitol steps. Because you're you're not allowed. So she was up for. I believe like three nights doing this Widespread coverage and the biden administration seems to have reversed course and pushed the cdc to extend this moratorium. And i noticed in the coverage of this depending on whose writing the story. Some people really emphasized the progressive activist wing of the party and corey bush's leadership. Here and others really emphasized. Nancy pelosi's behind the scenes conversations with the white house. So even in these stories of like. Who's actually getting things done in washington. You see the the sort of split in the democratic party playing out. I'm just curious. If you see this playing out a lot more in in congress i think it. It actually played out a bit in this race. Corey buscher supposed to be campaigning. For nina turner a weekend that she stayed out over the capitol steps and she couldn't come because she was trying to make a statement in dc and that was repeatedly mentioned at nina turner's victory on tuesday night that this is why we need people in congress like corey bush like nina turner because they are pushing the administration to get these gains the flip side of this on chantelle brown side. She stressed that nina turner had made too many enemies. She said i'm not going to have to start my time in congress with a long list of apologies to people i've offended. I've got good relationships. I can go in and get things done. Look at these people. I know what jim clyburn enjoy. Spady greg meeks penny thompson. These cbc members who have come into the district. I obviously have a good relationship with marcia fudge. I'm going to be effective. I'm going to be able to get things done. So i think there is still that back and forth in that question of like what brings results in this campaign this morning. I got an email from some very close to joe biden. Who made the following point to wanna tell me what you think of this. This person said chantal brown has fewer than twenty thousand twitter followers. Anita nina turner has nearly half a million but the afc wing of the party now has lost the louisiana special where their candidate outspent the winner. The virginia governor new york city mayor and now ohio eleven were nina turner and her name. R i d started with thirty five point lead end outspent. Shantelle brown person goes on. And the the d triple c polling showing that joe biden's agenda particularly infrastructure. Bill is the strongest argument in front-line districts. That should be a warning. So this person's clearly arguing that kind of biden style. Moderate candidates are crushing it in these elections and that is the way for democrats to keep the house next year. Is this a little too much spin or is this a real trend here. That should have the moderates declaring their like winning the civil war right now. I i actually have because this is a point. A lot on twitter. That twitter is not real life. Lena turner had all of this twitter energy but shawn brown had this port on the ground. that nina turner had all the money but her ideas weren't popular. I think there's two problems at that point..

"The gift things done for you choose endorsed by a lot of pro israel democrats. This district has the largest jewish population in the state so the two competing visions of the party were really do fit into this establishment. I progressive dichotomy. We can take away from the result. Cento brown's victory is that the democratic establishment is popular and in the biden era. It does really seem like progressives have had a harder time. Making a case against joe biden. Right the party establishment got rid of trump. joe biden is the consummate establishment democrat. He's in office. He's fairly popular. He did no better than a lot of democrats in swing districts. And you go back and look at the twenty twenty results and so i think progressives are having a harder time articulating. Why why do you need to throw the bums out now than they did. In the trump era. So i think that's a fair lesson but on the don't take away too much from this. Nina turner is a very unique candidate in that cheap on the trail for bernie sanders for two presidential campaigns. She was a regular presence on cable news in. She's very outspoken. And she says what she thinks and she's not afraid to use colorful language and there's a really long trail of her saying things about the democratic party thinks about president biden things about hillary clinton that the ads in the money that came in against here. They took her own words. She trashed joe. Bud you got to. And i don't think there's going to be a candidate again with so much real anna trove of tape to us to cut ads against her into paint her. As someone who is not welcoming the democratic party is that's part of the democratic party alley. Can you just tell us what it was like on the ground covering this race so much of american politics right now is focused on what's going on in washington. It's not campaign season so the special elections tend to get a huge flood of national attention to the scene. A little bit about what you're reporting trip was like and what how sort of the politics of washington are being refracted in these local races. Right now it's been a while since i've been out on the trail yet end bike a nice window here covet kind of dying down and yeah i mean both events and i was out here on election night and a little bit before. Both both campaigns had such well attended events. People seemed really really engaged. And new turner's events with a she had four different rallies spread out throughout the day. And i went to a few of those and in the first three were close to hundreds and attendants and the hundred channel range and two ton of excitement and it really felt like people made the connection between nina turner and llc and the squad and the squad was doing in washington and at nina turner's watch party. People were talking about the win. That corey bush got on the eviction moratorium. You're pointing to that. As an example of what progressives can do in congress sir really did feel like people leaned into the kind of nationalized nature of this race and chantelle brown had you know the majority of cbc leadership come out for her last weekend. Jim clyburn bennie thompson. Median and i think they both brought the not big national names into the district and shantelle had to chip away at nina's lead and a big part of chipping away. At nina's lead was stoking this democratic civil war argument and getting people interested in supporting her in getting people involved since. It's just the two of us talking. What is your favorite story from. The trip didn't make it into any of your coverage all. I'll leave nameless. But when i was chatting with a brown staffer he had started in june. So kinda well into the race and the first week he started was when the nina term poll came out in this report from Showing her at fifty percent in toll brown at i think fifteen percent and he was like recounting that moment for me where he got on the ground and it was kind of like you know what am i doing. This races is not winnable. And so i think that just showed the trajectory of like how much of a league chantelle brown had to overcome. Because you know by the end. Her pulling had her out. They didn't release this polling like she was up several points by the end i think they knew away was headed. Let's talk a little bit about the congressional black hawk casses involvement in this race. These were two african american candidates obviously but the cbc took sides Tell us about how that played out. Yeah that was an incredibly contentious part of the race because there's been policy that knowing there several black candidates in a race the the sea political arm stays out of it. This is not like a hardline policy but more general trend and some of its members have said that in the past this was an open seat race between two black women and they did just endorse but they very heavily put them on the scale to the extent that they can in the early respected in this district and i do think that made a difference. So the voters in this district. They know what the cbc is. That's not just an inside washington term to a lot of voters so yes and no older voters in the district are really familiar with the cbc. I i would say you know younger voters. It made less of an impact but There are definitely older..

"If you remember back to my episode about the last germans to surrender in world war two wars often have a very definitive start but do not have a very definitive end. This was certainly the case in the us civil war open. Hostilities began on april twelfth. Eighteen sixty one with the bombardment of fort sumner in south carolina while there was violence around the issue of slavery for many years the formal fighting between the two sides of the war began on that date and at that place when general lee surrendered in eighteen sixty five. He wasn't the commander in chief of all confederate forces. He was only the commander of the army of northern. Virginia when he surrendered. It was only the end of the army of northern virginia. Not of the confederacy. I often engage in hair-splitting on money and my episodes where i make technical distinctions to explain things. However in this case it really isn't a matter of splitting hairs. The surrender of the army of northern virginia was significant as it was the biggest confederate army and the war in virginia was the focal point of the entire conflict. But just because robert e lee surrendered. Didn't mean that any other general had to surrender moreover there's also a slight problem with communication even though there were telegraphs in eighteen sixty five. They weren't everywhere. If some other general wanted to follow lead of generally they might not even get the news of the surrender for weeks if not months. So with that. And using the surrender of robert e lee as the starting point. What happened after the surrender. And how long did it take for the war to finally end. Domino's started to fall within hours of lee's surrender many of them. Were just pure coincidence. Down in alabama. The battle of fort blakely was also fought on april ninth while he was surrendering in virginia. Just a confederate brigadier general. Saint john richardson little was captured and he surrendered his forces. He was totally unaware of what generally had done. On april fourteenth abraham lincoln was assassinated word of this spread quickly but again not everywhere union general. James h wilson was leading a raiding party through alabama and georgia. He had not heard anything about lisa rendering or lincoln being killed. He fought the battle of columbus georgia on april sixteenth. This is often called the last battle of the civil war but as we will see it wasn't one part of lee's army was colonel. John moesby. Whoever unit called moses raiders. They were more of a guerrilla unit fighting northern virginia. His unit never surrendered. They just disbanded and he sent all his troops back home fully-armed. He notified the troops with the following letter quote soldiers. I have someone together for the last time the vision we have cherished of a free and independent country has vanished and that country is now the spoil of conqueror i just banned your organization in preference to surrendering it to our enemies. I am no longer your commander after association of more than two eventful years.

"The plots in the winter. Soldier is ten times better than the plots civil war. People wouldn't be like. Oh you know. Bucky killed armaments parents blah blah. But you live from the beginning of the movie. It wasn't like it was a plot twist like they showed the opening scene with bucky. The whole time like it killed. His parents like you knew was dumb. The winter soldier they literally showed how shield was hydra. This is when i watched that movie. And i was like i saw in theaters. I was like holy faulk. Shield his hydra doctor. Zoll is working for shield but he was for hydrogen time. The looting was killed. Captain america in black widow while they were in the fucking base in jersey and civil war. There's nothing really like that. Like yeah you get that parenting but so what you know what i mean like twenty twenty that like i get it but it's just i don't know listen people. I don't know if i'm wrong to say this. You know. I don't know if it's because would soldier resonate more or is because i'm just a bigger fan of the individual films. I think that the civil war's biggest downfall was that i had so many people in it. I think that took away so much from the movie realistically. Yeah you experimentalist people in there and it was like. Oh my god iconic this this and this but like they could have done so much more with captain america just alone in the comic books in america ends up dying and civil war and then falcon turns into will not found him. Bucky turns into the next Captain america and couldn't such better job doing it but he didn't and it's sad to see so on top of also that in the winter soldier the whole scene where once they find out what's going on him bucky fighting at the scene on the fucking on the healthcare or the.
